Man I've always thought Dickey sure is a fine guitarist. Saw him & Great Southern right here in Keene at the Colonial a while back, where we've been graced by many of my faves such as DGQ, Crosby Pevar & Raymond, even ol' Robert Hunter ( my first time seeing him after many years of wanting to) just to name a few. Great Southern was by far the most kick ass rocking I've witnessed in our little theatre !

Agreed about DB...loved him in the early 70s, but didn't stick with him over the years. Funny, but now I am trying to find out more about J Winter as I vaguely knew of his rep, but really had no idea what kind of player he was. The show we chatted about the other day really got me excited about his work, history, etc.

And, I am sure you will find this odd, but I took his "style" to be something like Jerry, NOT in the sense of literally like Jerry, but in the sense of when describing how great he was, it wasn't as easy as talking about Jimi or Jimmy or Pete; it was more his tone, his pauses, his touch...his perfect note production, etc.

Interesting...

WT: I'm still of the opinion that the "Richard" Betts LP entitled Highway Call was/is one of the finest "country" albums ever produced. Until recently I was unaware that it spawned a tour "The Great American Music Show" which was recorded at Winterland. This show is an awesome testament to Dickey's "team player" attitude, always allowing other talent to come to the fore.

Over the course of the last year this show, the 6-10-73 Dead show with Dickey sitting in and the 12-31-73 ABB at the Cow Palace with Jerry sitting in on a no-vocals Whipping Post jam (and more) have become regulars on the MR. Earl Jukebox.

I highly recommend this show, and believe it's out there somewhere on torrent.

Ha--well, there you go again! As in, YES! Agreed: that 73 NY show at the CP has ALWAYS been in my rotation! Radio broadcast that we recorded, and the sound quality was unreal, which helped make it a most listened to of all time for me, nonDEAD that is...
